It seems to be a long time ago already, but these well preserved advertising posters surely deserved to be revisited again, they are old, but still beautifully crafted even by today's standard.
When America was in the great depression in the late 1920s and early 1930s, China's economy was booming, with incoming Western culture and occupation by Japanese, China, especially Shanghai became the World City.
Along with booming economy, advertising automatically picked up, and posters were everywhere. Below are the pictures of the vintage posters from that era that were being displayed at the Guan Shanyu Art Museum in the city of Shenzhen.
